POSITION: Vice President of Operations
I grew up in Toledo and went to college at the Ohio State University (Go Bucks!). After graduating with a degree in chemical engineering, I made my way to Cincinnati. I have always found ways to volunteer wherever I live, so Give Back was a natural fit. I also volunteer with my therapy dog, visiting patients at a local hospital and reading with kids at the Mason library.
Why I got involved with GBC:
I was looking to meet people when I was new to Cincinnati, and I love to volunteer, so Give Back was a perfect fit!
Why others should get involved:
The people you meet through Give Back are some of the nicest people you will ever meet. You bond over the shared experience of volunteering and can make good friends quickly.
What makes GBC unique:
GBC is a unique organization in a lot of ways. From its guilt-free volunteering model, to the number and variety of events we put on, to how easy it is to get involved with leadership (join a committee!), to the fact that literally every event ends in an after party. There is something for everyone.
First GBC event:
Young at Heart 2014.
Favorite GBC event:
Paint the Town – it’s a long, hot, ladder-filled day, but the sense of accomplishment afterwards can’t be beat!
What excites me about 2018:
I’m excited for the new leadership board. We have some new, very talented and qualified people on the board, meaning that we have an opportunity to make 2018 the best year for GBC yet!
I was recently elected to public office as a trustee of Deerfield Township.
